Abstract

In yeast the resistance to kresoxim-methyl and azoxystrobin, like the resistance to strobilurin A (mucidin) is under the control of both mitochondrial cob gene and the PDR network of nuclear genes involved in multidrug resistance. The mucidin-resistant mucl (G137R) and muc2 (L275S) mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing point mutations in mtDNA were found to be cross-resistant to kresoxim-methyl and azoxystrobin. Cross-resistance to all three strobilurin fungicides was also observed in yeast transformants containing gain-of-function mutations in the nuclear PDR3 gene. On the other hand, nuclear mutants containing disrupted chromosomal copies of the PDR1 and PDR3 genes or the PDR5 gene alone were hypersensitive to kresoxim-methyl, azoxystrobin and strobilurin A. The frequencies of spontaneous mutants selected for resistance either to kresoxim-methyl, azoxystrobin or strobilurin A were similar and resulted from mutations both in mitochondrial and nuclear genes. The results indicate that resistance to strobilurin fungicides, differing in chemical structure and specific activity, can be caused by the same molecular mechanism involving changes in the structure of apocytochrome b and/or increased efflux of strobilurins from fungal cells.
